“I have resigned, effective immediately, it was a privilege to serve.”
The White House has officially entered a free fall after top staffer Michael Short abruptly resigned sending shock waves through Washington D.C. Trump’s administration is in complete chaos and the resignations are expected to increase as the Russia investigations put legal pressure on staffers.
New White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci may only be into his first week as communications director; however, he is definitely shaking things up.
POLITICO reported that he is ready to “fire everybody” to stop the leaks that have been trickling from the White House.
Rather than be fired, Short resigned.
Scaramucci told reporters Tuesday:
‘I’m going to fire everybody, that’s how I’m going to do it. You’re either going to stop leaking or you’re going to be fired.’
Scaramucci has forced Michael Short to resign from Communications office. All outsiders being kicked out as Trump implodes
